Warm from the inside out

Lately I've been focusing on eating more warming foods, as one of the simple changes to support my dosha (primarily vata)... it has had SUCH a significant change in the way I feel after I eat! Almost like I am "warmed", body and spirit from the inside out. I even heated my ham sammie for a bit in the toaster oven at work today! I always knew I loved hot foods (even in the summer!) So far even the small changes I've made to be more dosha-friendly have had great results =)

Dinner was simple and quick- I heated up some chunky lentil soup I made last week and froze, topped with a tiny bit (about 1 tsp) of parmesan cheese. On the side I had some leftover red pepper I wanted to use up. I love the taste of pepper but I know it's not the best for my dosha type (especially raw!) but this was a small portion. The meal was yummy and filling, great Sunday night eats.

For dessert I tried out one of the new Kozy Shack Rice Puddings I bought- SO. GOOD.!!! I had one that I heated and topped with some cinnamon, along with 1/2 a juicy pink grapefruit for dessert. This was a great combo- I had fruit that I was craving and a warm, hearty dessert treat as well!

Relaxing in bed with my new book on Ayurveda for the night!
